Nikon D850 is finally here. After the leaked specs and photos, here comes the official announcement from Nikon, along with the detailed specs and the price. The D850 is Nikon’s first DSLR with a backside illumination CMOS sensor. Together with the camera’s low-noise performance, it allows a maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 25600 (expandable to ISO 102400).

Nikon D850 features the full-frame recording of 4K UHD (3840 x 2160)/30p movies, as well as 4x and 5x slow-motion movies in Full HD, and 8K timelapse.

This camera features 7 fps continuous shooting with just the camera, and up to approximately 9 fps with the MB-D18 Multi-Power Battery Pack.  It features the 153-point AF system of D5, enabling proper focusing in a wide variety of situations. A novelty is that Nikon D850 offers focus-stacking shooting mode in-camera. In other words, it enables the focus shift function for capturing the images (you’ll still need to make the final image in post).

Nikon D850 enables you to choose between three sizes of RAW files, depending on how you’ll use the photos: large (45.4 MP), medium (25.6 MP) and small (11.4 MP). It has a silent photography feature, which enables silent capture of full-frame photos. The sound of the shutter release and mechanical vibration are completely reduced. As for the display, it features a 3.2″ 2.36m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the specs.
